You chose: sanremo

  • Watched by at least 12 million TV viewers, the annual Sanremo Festival was a "magical week." In May the winner, Mahmood, will represent Italy at the the Eurovision Song Festival at Tel Aviv. But a few sour notes from the festival that began Feb. 5 still linger in the air.

    Il vincitore è Mahmood, un ragazzo di origine egiziana, integrato grazie alla sua passione per la musica che rappresenta una parte importante della gioventù italiana.

    Once again on music, politics, culture, and life in New York. But also on the Sanremo Festival—for decades the platform for main- stream music in Italy. Pagani is directing it for the second year in a row, and we want to know why. "As we used to say, the quality of everything one does is political, so music is always political in that it has a political effect. An ugly song is a 'carrier' of subculture whereas a good song is the opposite, so the only way to be positive in music is to produce beautiful songs."

    Sanremo Festival is changing along with time. With the national general elections only days away the festival for the first time and in a particular fashion addresses the politics of the nation.
  • They should be the real protagonists of the contemporary Italian music scene. Despite numerous issues, from controversies against religious magazines to fashion styles and the lack of underwear, the tunes are what the Italy's most celebrated music festival must really focus on
